04:44 <nickzxcv> so I have boinc working in FreeBSD 8.0 for einstein@home

04:44 <nickzxcv> I had to compile the port of boinc-client with the alternate platform of linux, and have the linux support in freebsd setup

04:44 <nickzxcv> and I've completed some workunits for einstein@home

04:45 <nickzxcv> but now I tried to attach to seti@home also, and it says "no work available"

04:45 <nickzxcv> project has no jobs available

04:47 <nickzxcv> so I think boinc-client has been compiled with --with-boinc-alt-platform=i686-pc-linux-gnu

19:29 * CoderForLife plots conversion of some of his cash savings into precious metals

19:32 * wdsmia thinks CoderForLife should put some of that cash savings into paying off his wall... precious dirt and stone

19:33 <CoderForLife> I'm doing pretty well in that department; got the 2 credit cards paid off now, and have started paying extra on the HELOC starting tonight

19:35 <CoderForLife> these are core cash savings in event of *another* emergency - converting them to "barter material" for *when* the economy crashes

19:38 * CoderForLife adds another "defect" to his Redmine tracking system

19:40 <CoderForLife> this one is strange - my javascript Code only works differently (wrong) in Chrome - IE, Firefox, Opera and Safari are OK - usually IE is the bad one

19:41 <Tank_Master> google probaly has their own standard

19:41 <wdsmia> theres that nasty four letter word again... java

19:41 <Tank_Master> yep

19:41 <Tank_Master> its evil

19:42 <CoderForLife> javascript != java

19:43 <PovAddict> java and javascript are similar like car and carpet are similar

19:44 <CoderForLife> zackly

19:44 * wdsmia throws PovAddict back into the crevasse

19:44 <Tank_Master> still contains the 4 letter word

19:44 <CoderForLife> another marketing department run amok

19:50 <quail> 'noon

19:50 <CoderForLife> hey Dale

19:50 <wdsmia> *lo q

19:50 <quail> hey Don, how are things?

19:51 <quail> hey Doug, how are things?

19:51 <CoderForLife> wet, loud and flashy

19:51 <wdsmia> melting :)

19:51 <quail> CoderForLife: you at a strip club?

19:51 <quail> hehe j/k

19:52 <CoderForLife> I managed to get the leaf blower out before the front moved in, and blew the leaves out of the grass so I can put down the spring fertilizer this weekend

19:52 <quail> nice :-)

19:52 <CoderForLife> the flowers are coming up

19:53 <wdsmia> still to much ice to do that here

19:53 <CoderForLife> this will be the second summer for the new front lawn

19:55 <quail> 9 days and counting

19:55 * CoderForLife listens to his personal theme song for 2010 - "De Nio a Viejo" by Altamirano

19:57 <CoderForLife> every year I pick a song that seems to have some special appeal to me, and that becomes some Coding music

19:57 * quail has not had a cigarette for 9 days now :-)

19:57 <CoderForLife> hey congrats quail

19:57 <CoderForLife> and I've dropped 120 pounds

19:57 <Tank_Master> nice

19:57 <quail> congratz CoderForLife

19:58 <CoderForLife> thx - everyone wants to know my secret

19:58 <Tank_Master> you dont eat

19:58 <quail> you stopped eating and gone on a liquid diet?

19:58 <CoderForLife> I eat the same foods I always did

19:58 <CoderForLife> just a lot less

19:59 <Tank_Master> good

19:59 <CoderForLife> and count the calories and stay below the daily goal

19:59 <quail> :-)

19:59 * wdsmia goes out for a cigarette after finishing off 1/2 a pizza

19:59 <CoderForLife> I had a whole pizza for lunch

20:00 * quail get a water gun a squirts wdsmia and his cigarette

20:00 <CoderForLife> individual size Serious Meat at Donato's

20:01 <quail> &math convert 72 kg lb

20:01 <Romulus> quail: 158.732828773

20:02 <CoderForLife> I weighed 196 this morning

20:02 <quail> &math convert 196 lb kg

20:02 <Romulus> quail: 88.90410452

20:03 <CoderForLife> The body mass index charts have me mearly at "overweight" now

20:03 <CoderForLife> er merely

20:03 <quail> bmi = fail!

20:03 <CoderForLife> I'm on my 3rd set of clothes

20:03 <quail> bmi charts say you unhealthy when you not

20:04 <CoderForLife> waist size has gone from 52 inches to about 37 inches

20:04 <quail> nice

20:04 <quail> are you excercising more too now?

20:04 <CoderForLife> yes - certainly - I have the energy now

20:05 <CoderForLife> lifting weights - walking a lot more - climbing the stairs at work twice a day

20:06 <quail> I am going to get back into bike riding again soon when I can get used to theses tablets I am on. I have to be on theses tablets for 3 months

20:06 <CoderForLife> going from floor 2 to 7, down to G2, then back up to G1, then 1 and 2 - I do that twice, twice a day

20:06 <CoderForLife> in about 8 minutes time

20:06 <CoderForLife> before, I couldn't go one floor

20:07 <quail> cool, great to hear you are improving your life style too

20:07 <CoderForLife> yup

20:08 <CoderForLife> I go see my primary care doctor again on the 22nd

20:08 <CoderForLife> talk about next steps

20:08 <quail> you might have heard of theses tablets, Champix?

20:08 <CoderForLife> hmm - no

20:09 <quail> they the tablets I am on to help me quit smoking

20:09 <CoderForLife> ah

20:09 <quail> and they are evil

20:09 <CoderForLife> lol

20:09 <quail> evil I tell you

20:09 <quail> hehe

20:09 <CoderForLife> the means justifies the end

20:10 <CoderForLife> I also got the wall half paid off last week =)

20:10 <quail> and I have quit drinking too, have not had a drink now close to 4 weeks

20:11 <quail> I had to do that before my doctor would let me on theses tablets

20:11 <CoderForLife> I have never smoked, and I only drink about a half glass of wine when I go out to dinner on comany business

20:11 <CoderForLife> er company

20:11 <quail> cause drink on theses tablets can kill you

20:11 <wdsmia> no kill pills... dont help the cravings much but keeps you killing those around you

20:12 <quail> wdsmia: lol

20:12 <wdsmia> err there was a "from killing" in there

20:14 <CoderForLife> I thought you were saying they turn you into a murderous zombie

20:14 <wdsmia> quiting does

20:15 <quail> wdsmia: yeah, but theses tablet do help heaps

20:16 <quail> champix have no nitcotine in them, but block the nictotine reseptors

20:16 <quail> to minimize the cravings

20:17 <quail> Champix is a 3 month coarse and when you start on them you can smoke up to ~ day 8, but I stopped on the 4 day of being on them

20:18 <quail> now I just go through a crap load of eclipse mints

20:18 <wdsmia> lol

20:21 <quail> here a thing about champix =>

20:21 <Romulus> <> (at

20:23 <quail> the main side effect atm I have is not getting a lot of sleep, so I have a workaround atm were when one tablet is wearing off I got for a lie down for an hour or two

20:24 <quail> atm my days are from 8am - 2am :-/

20:27 <CoderForLife> well I'm going to crawl off to bed - catch up on my beauty rest - I really need it =)
